request for use in documentary
Hi This film is very informative - I am seeking rights to use a segment of the film in a non profit educational documentary for broadcast. Can I use it? Thanks

This is definately northern New Mexico as I remember it. The first shots are in Santa Fe, and as they are going southwest, you see the village of San Miguel and San Yisdro Pueblo during a celebration. This is classic because you cannot film the pueblos anymore during celebrations. They were heading out west, probably on Rt. 666, ending up in the Grand Canyon. There was no California involved. This is classic!

NM in 1920s? including Indian feast day
Much of this movie is NM in the 1920s, including very candid shots of a feast day at a pueblo where the women wear tablitas. The other reviewer didn't know what he was looking at! If you go to a feast day now at a pueblo, it wouldn't look all that different in some respects. I'm guessing the date from the cars but I'm no expert. The opening shots look like the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, including possibly the inner courtyard. I'd love to know what pueblo that is. Slow views of great adobe buildings. There's also some wonderful hats on the cowboys and Indians. Later shots appear to be Grand Canyon and CA. I hope someone who can better identify these places posts a review.

"Get a picture of the savages Mildred!"
Fairly pedestrian home movie showing us shots of San Ysidro, California, New Mexico and Arizona. Some interesting shots of adobe housing, visiting some national monuments in Arizona, but the fascinating points of the film comes early on when a county fair in, I think, San Ysidro is going on, yet all the cameraman is focused on is getting shots of Indians, who look to be trying to live their lives and not be the focal points of the damn tourists. Actually there is some nice headresses worn by the women, but one can't feel a little uncomfortable in this preoccupation with these shots, as it looks like .. you know, a fair with other things going on are being presented?
